Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

This is such a quick easy budget friendly recipe, and so savory.   I serve this on fresh buns, and some kids choose to top with BBQ sauce.  It's good just the way it comes out of the slow cooker also!  The next day I freeze the leftovers or save some to add for a coleslaw salad for myself.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

3-4 pounds of boneless pork shoulder (I always have to remember the shoulder is the one that shreds the best)

1 tsp paprika

2 tsps garlic powder

2 tsps cumin

2 tsp chili powder

2 tsp kosher salt

3 TBS brown sugar

1 onion, chopped

In a small bowl, mix together the seasonings.

Place the pork shoulder in the slow cooker and coat it with the seasonings and onion.  That's it!

Cook on low for 8 hours.  When time is up, shred the meat with two forks until it's all mixed up.  It's ready to serve!

  1. I tried this with a pork piece labeled "boneless loin chops" but it was like a small roast. It was $5.27....quite the bargain! I omitted the cumin because I couldn't reconcile that with bbq taste for me. It was probably the best pork roast I've ever made or had! It was a winner for all of us! I served on dinner rolls because that's what I had in the freezer. It didn't really need bbq sauce with the juice mixed into the shredded meat. Tonight I used some of the meat warmed up with some taco seasoning and made quesadillas with it. Also, a hit! I will make this over and over again! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
